Today, 26th September, marks the birthday of Barbara Mahama, widow of the late Major Maxwell Mahama.
Ghanaians on social media have taken it upon themselves to celebrate Barbara, whose life was filled with so much tragedy that day in May when her husband was brutally murdered.
Major Maxwell Mahama was the victim of mob injustice on May 29 2017, four months ago, in Denkyira-Obuasi. A soldier stationed in the town to serve his nation, his life was tragically cut short by a mob.
His story shocked the whole nation that day, catapulting the family into national prominence.
Through it all, Barbara has remained steadfast, despite the immense tragedy of losing her loved one so abruptly, with two children left behind.
We believe she deserves celebrating on this day. Happy birthday Barbara.
